Urgent Request: Veterans Treatment Court Needs Veteran Mentors


The Veterans Treatment Court of San Joaquin County is looking for veterans of the Armed Services to serve as volunteer mentors for veterans who are in Veterans Treatment Court. A major component of this treatment program is for veterans to be paired with their volunteer mentors, meet during the once-a-month court session, and have one or more contacts via telephone or e-mail during the week. The goal is for the mentor to help support the veteran in his or her treatment toward the goal of successful completion and graduation from the program at the end of the 12- to 18-month term.

The commitment is to attend the once a month Veterans Court session (first Monday of the month at 9:30 a.m., Dept. 10- D) to have a face-to-face meeting with your assigned veteran(s), and then to touch base at least weekly via phone, text or e-mail to support and encourage your veteran to complete his or her program requirements.

If you are a veteran who would like to give back to fellow veterans, please volunteer for the Veterans Treatment Court to be a mentor. Please call Mentor Coordinator Ramona Peterson at (209) 834-4353 for information or to volunteer. Or you may e-mail her at:
Thank you!
